Don't judge a book by its movie cover #3

The film was based on the best-selling book, and now the book is sold with images of the adaptation emblazoned on its the cover. It’s an endless cycle of one capitalizing on the success of the other.
Here are some examples of original book covers, and the replacement movie poster versions. What are your views? Does the movie poster demonstrate what the book is all about? Does the new art do the original story justice? Are the famous faces likely to have a positive impact on book sales?

  1. Hi Danielle! Happy New Year!! Hope you had a great night :)

    I don't know why but I hate buying books with the movie cover on them. I much prefer the original cover. The movie covers seem to date very quickly as well whereas the original covers are usually timeless.

    I can't wait to see what's in store for your blog in 2012!

  2. I think in all cases I actually really dig the movie cover.
